What music has been your summer soundtrack?
- I would like to start this post by noting that anyone who doesn't include "Call Me Maybe" on their list is a dirty rotten liar; that song has been pretty much unavoidable and I can't help having it in my head at least 30% of the time. Since I have seen a fair number of HONEST posters include this one today, I will include the Sesame Street version.
- The other song I've found impossible to avoid, as I've been glued to the Olympics, is even more embarrassing. Apparently it's by the appallingly named Phillip Phillips, of American Idol fame. It's called "Home", and in the interest of not bringing down the infamous copyright wrath of the IOC, I'm just going to link to this EW article about how it's being used as the theme song of the US Women's Gymnastics team.
- Annnnnnd then there are the songs associated with the TV we've been watching. First of all, Mr. S and I have finally gotten around to Friday Night Lights, which isn't super musical, but does have a timeless refrain in "Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose." Second of all, we have been watching Dawson's Creek, which I loved the first season of but never really watched thoroughly all the way through. In a complete and utter travesty, the immortal theme song (Paula Cole's I Don't Wanna Wait) has been replaced on Netflix/DVDs by some other dopey song, the first line of which sounds a lot like "My heart is in my pants." The real lyric is "my heart is in my hands" but I think my version might be more appropriate for the crew from the Creek, who are all either getting sexy with each other or obsessing over the fact that they aren't. And third of all, I have been having a LOT of "Oh, THAT'S what that song is called?" moments while watching season two of The Glee Project, a reality show designed to cast a recurring character on Glee.
